The Lifetime Achievement Awards
The Lifetime Achievement Awards honor those whose contributions to law and to society have made significant positive impacts.
The A-list Awards
The A-list Awards honor the top 20 firms that lead the industry. They lead in 4 key areas - pro bono, associate satisfaction, diversity and financial performance.
The Best Legal Department Awards
The Best Legal Department Awards honor four companies that have been judged by Corporate Counsel magazine to have the best in-house legal staffs in the country this year.
Each year we recognize a managing partner or chairperson who led his or her firm to the highest professional distinction.
